All the charity teams met at Boston College at 7:00 and were bused to Hopkinton around 7:30. There were a *lot* of buses and I heard from several people that there were over 500 charity runners registered to partitpate in this last and most important training run. The mood on my bus seemed pretty low key, even though one of the coaches tried a couple of times to rev everyone up. After a few half hearted cheers in response to “IS EVERYONE EXCITED!!!!” the coach settled back into his seat as the bus took off. The bus ride took a long time, and considering a lot of it was spent on Route 90 west it started to sink in just how far we would be running today.
